Although 7 Bandits' blueprint for electronic listening music -- aching electro-synth with mid-tempo beats and occasional guitars -- isn't quite a revolution in and of itself, A Flock of Dream Tokens is an amazing album.

The third album by 7 Bandits headed by label co-founder Zero V further explores the 7 Bandits concept. There's more of a coherent sound now, featuring Zero V and remixer DJ PulseID.
